Singer FKA Twigs raised eyebrows when she arrived with her other half Robert Pattinson at the Met Gala, showing off what appeared to be an engagement ring and an erotic dress.

The New York event attracted some of the world's biggest stars, and most of them aimed to turn heads.

Beyonce - whose sister Solange's altercation with her husband Jay-Z hogged the headlines last year - once again stole the limelight, leaving very little to the imagination in a sheer Givenchy number dotted with multicoloured crystals and stones.

Fellow singer Rihanna donned a canary yellow fur-trimmed cape and a tiara - which prompted comparisons on social media to an omelette.

Diminutive former Sex And The City actress Sarah Jessica Parker gave herself added height with a huge, flame-like headpiece.

FKA Twigs and the former Twilight actor - who are thought to have become engaged after just six months of dating - made their red carpet debut as a couple at the event.

The Ivor Novello-nominated singer, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, wore a brightly coloured Christopher Kane dress, which was printed with naked bodies and even featured male genitalia.

She also appeared to be wearing a large engagement ring, confirming rumours that the British stars are set to wed.

FKA Twigs has previously said of dating the world-famous actor, whom she met after the end of his romance with actress Kristen Stewart: "The positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects... very worth it."

Anne Hathaway wore a Ralph Lauren gold number, complete with hood, which fans suggested made her look as though she was referencing Star Wars.

And for once Kim Kardashian was not the centre of attention at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art bash, despite wearing a revealing, low-cut gown.
